The all-you-can-eat fish fry will be served with baked potato, coleslaw, applesauce, rolls, desert, and beverage from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. cost of the dinner ticket is only $5.00 per person thanks to Ag Credit of Mount Gilead; Central Ohio Farmer’s Co-op, Inc., Mt.

Their music features guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, bass, autoharp, and a close blend of three-part harmony.

Another important feature of the evening will be the election of one member to the Morrow SWCD Board of Supervisors to serve a three-year term beginning January 1, 2016.

The Morrow SWCD Cooperator of the Year Award will be presented to a deserving conservation cooperator, honoring them for their accomplishments in the conservation of our natural resources. And as always, door prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of the evening.
